Beautiful to look at,superb to play,and a all-round solid gaming experience of the highest quality,yes i could nit pick and say that its very much the same throughout the game but thats a minor flaw because what it does it does so well and in my books this gets a 9.5 and is my top 20 games of all time for sure.
Voice acting and graphics are some of the best i have ever seen,lighting effects blow you away,the amount of detail in the city is breathtaking and it really is a masterclass in game production and sucker punch need a massive pat on the back for producing a game thats a credit to the playstation 4.
My completed score was 86% so there is still areas to clear and find a few things scattered around the map and i was toold that after the credits rolled,but i can also discover hidden powers by playing the game through again as the bad guy instead of my chosen path first time around as the good guy.
The playstation 3 ended its life cycle in my books with a masterpiece which was The last Of Us [Apparently coming with enhanced graphics to P4 this summer] the Playstation 4 4 months later gets a game thats on the same level,so prepare for some amazing looking games in the next 12/18 months.
You see Kila when a game of this standard lands in Timeys lap he admires its grace and beauty and puts time into completing it which took me 12 hours and not the 1 hour you think i spend with each game i buy
If i don't take to a game i don't spend time on it,i completed Battlefield 4 single player,Killzone shadowfall single player,the last of us [twice] and many many more over the years.
But for every single game that takes my attention and i finish,and believe me i have finished many games,there are many others that i haven't and the list would be 100s.
Games got to grip me within 10 minutes and generally when you first load up a game you get a feeling by watching the opening credits if this game is going to rock and roll.
Titanfall had a amazing opening sequence and as online multiplayer shooter its brilliant,same can be said for Infamous Second Son and many others.
Take the First 20 minutes of The Last of us,that was a story that actually gripped you from the start to the very end and these games only pop up every couple of years and only a handful of developers have the skill and resources to produce them.
For ever brilliant game there is 10 junk ones,and unfortunately because of my passion and love of games for the past 35 plus years i end up buying quite a few turkeys.
But i have reigned back now and think a lot more carefully about what i buy with this generation,my local blockbusters has now gone and there are very few shops now that you can trade in your unwanted games.
